This magnificent mortuary temple was built on the site of Seti I’s ruined temple and was described as the “tomb of Ozymandia,” which later inspired a poetic verse by Percy Bysshe Shelley.

Amazing! There was only one more person when I visited. I loved it. Quiet and gives you zen spirit! The Ozymandias Colossus was amazing.

As other places in Egypt this place too require a certain amount of physical fitness since one has to walk a bit to feel the history and witness the past. The structures are not intact but the most is restored. History libes here

We flew over this in the hot air balloon. Great pictures from on high. We did not go here, but in hindsight, wished we had. Lovely shadows in the early morning, making for great pics. Recommend
